Non-Destructive Digging



Non-destructive digging, also called hydro excavation, makes use of high-pressure water and vacuum to safely excavate soil that is found around underground utilities. CSA Specialised has performed non-destructive digging around various pieces of critical infrastructure, such as sewer lines, power cables, gas lines, telecommunication cables and more.

One of the reasons many of our clients choose to use non-destructive digging is because of the lower risk of damage to underground utilities. Conventional mechanical digging might be appropriate in some applications, but it is a very risky endeavour around your underground assets. There have been many incidents in which underground cables and pipes have been accidentally damaged when mechanical digging has taken place nearby. Such accidents can cause damages totalling millions of dollars. Civil contractors and utility companies have now recognized that non-destructive digging or hydro excavation is much safer than using mechanical methods of excavation.

Hydro excavation can be used to pothole or expose underground utilities such as pipes and cables with minimal damage and disruption. It uses a high-pressure water jet to remove material such as soil, dirt and sand, thus exposing the underground utility that you want to access. The material that has been dislodged is then vacuumed up, which allows for easy waste removal and creates a cleaner worksite. You won't have to worry about hauling away waste material from the construction site as it will be vacuumed up, and we will dispose of it.

After non-destructive digging or hydro excavation has taken place, repairing the ground is much easier than if mechanical excavation was used. This makes it a great choice in areas that experience high amounts of traffic, such as public sidewalks and roadways. The excavation work can be completed much faster, which helps reduce your overall costs and minimizes the disruption of traffic in the surrounding area.
